Just wanted to let you all know I have made a couple of changes today to the forum. One is a fix for the "Child Boards" title for the sub-forums that was standard with the SMF software. This has been changed (finally) to read "Sub_Forums" so now we don't have to feel childish for using them. :banana:

Also, I have installed Viglink software which is a way to help generate a little revenue for the forum. Words in posts that refer to retail websites affiliated with Viglink are automatically turned into active links, and existing links become affiliated links. What this means is if someone follows a link from B&B to an online store, and if that online store happens to be an affiliate, and if they then buy something from that affiliated store, then B&B gets a small commission from the sale. That's a lot of "ifs"! :D

This software is pretty unobtrusive and you won't even notice it unless you mouse over a word that it has converted into a link. To see it in action, mouse over the word Viglink earlier in this post.
